Connecting Signals to the IV Analyzer

Last Modified: May 14, 2018

The Current-Voltage (IV) Analyzer on the NI ELVIS III instrument panel includes DUT (device under test) connectors. Use the DUT+, DUT–, and BASE connectors to plot the current-voltage response of a NPN or PNP bipolar transistor. Use DUT+ and DUT- to plot the current-voltage response of a diode.


Insert the component directly into the IV Analyzer screw terminals to achieve the highest accuracy measurements. In cases where the component cannot be directly inserted, use short wires to minimize parasitic effects that impact the overall impedance of the device under test.
